Enhance your smile with Dental Veneers
To address slight cosmetic concerns, the team at The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine in Red Bank, New Jersey may recommend the use of dental veneers. Dental veneers, also referred to as “porcelain veneers,” are a great way to achieve a perfect smile! Veneers are placed over the front of teeth to disguise imperfections. These thin shells of porcelain are a great way to correct a myriad of smile imperfections and can:
- Cover teeth that are severely discolored or stained and not responsive to professional teeth whitening
- Close larger spaces and gaps between the teeth in the front of the smile
- Improve the appearance of teeth that are irregular in shape, either too short or misshapen
- Restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, or fractured
- Correct teeth that are slightly crooked or misaligned within the smile
What about the teeth under veneers?
Veneers cover the front of a tooth, but leave a portion of the tooth exposed. This leaves a tooth still susceptible to oral health problems such as periodontal disease or tooth decay. Because of the remaining tooth structure underneath the veneer, it is vital that patients maintain their routine dental examinations and cleanings to monitor for changes that might impact the health of the smile. X-rays can be used to help spot problems underneath a veneer that may need attention from a dental professional.
How do I care for my permanent veneers?
Veneers don’t require any additional care or attention than the rest of the smile. However, patients who have conditions such as bruxism, which causes the clenching and grinding of the teeth, may need to wear a mouthguard at night to protect their veneers and reduce the risk of worn down natural teeth as well.
